I have a WD 2 TB USB 3.0 HDD connected to a networked PC. Network sharing is enabled on this drive. The HDD has a bunch of my ripped MKV bluray movie files on it. Is there a setting for the Edision to "see" this drive and can it play MKV files?
Nope, doesn't work for me either.I've never gotten it to work FROM the Mio.
ALL my other media devices on the network can SEE the MIO's 2TB WD drive and play things on it, but the Mio can't do the reverse. It can see other drives on the network after scanning, and even mount them. It just can't see any files on the drives. I've tried everything I can think of, and it just doesn't work. Oh, I didn't get around to installing Kodi yet and seeing if it'll work from there, so maybe.
You can try going into the Network Browser Mount Manager and scan your network. IF it sees your drive, use the options to mount it. Once that's done, see if you can get it to work from the Mio.
Maybe read this, I didn't find this yet back when I tried to make it work, and I haven't yet tried it as of yet again since I found it. So maybe you can get it to work: Data sharing - OpenPLi Wiki
I agree; it's not a dealbreaker for me if it can't see networked drives. It functions as a satellite receiver and OTA tuner just fineIt should be doable, we are just missing something, IMO. However, it's far more important to ME that the Mio does what it does best, IE: Satellite and ATSC reception, and good timer recordings through WebIF or EPG on the local tuner. I've got that pretty much figured out, and that's good enough for me. Now if I can only get 14 days of EPG for ATSC channels... I figured out how to download data from tvguide and Zap2it to an .xml file, I just haven't figured out how to get the Mio to read it in as of yet.
I have other devices that do media playing as their best thing, so that doesn't bother me much, though it would be handy at times.
Took a look at this today, finally got the mio to see my win7 laptop. I can browse with the media player (pvr key) and play video and music files.Yes, it made no difference.
